"The 2014 Proprietary Red Passion, which spent 17 months in 42% French oak and is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, exhibits a complex, fragrant nose of unsmoked cigar tobacco, chocolate, camphor, vanillin and oodles of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. It is long, rich, sensual, lush and best consumed over the next 12-15+ years." (WA)

Tasting Notes:
The 2014 Passion Red Blend opens with enticing aromas of black currant and star anise with hints of blueberry and plum skin. Seductive flavors of bing cherry, blackberry and sweet jam are highlighted with a hint of cedar and supple tannins that lead to a long, satisfying finish.

What Passion Signifies:
Passion is a culmination; a gathering of styles, vineyards and emotions. This superlative blend is an emotional crescendo; a wine that unites the best of the Napa Valley terroirs to create a harmonious and exceptional blend that captures the essence of the JCB Collection.
